Felt Crafts

Here are all of Activity Village's felt crafts for kids. Some need early sewing skills: felt is a great way to start children off on sewing as it doesn't fray. Most you can still carry out successfully with just glue if your kids aren't interested in sewing.

For the youngest children, we suggest you pre-cut the felt shapes you will need and have them ready for your crafting session - that's the best way to keep the kids interested for longer! You could do the same for an after-supper party activity, with the children taking home their efforts.
